These Udon noodles ship dried but when you put them in boiling water, they quickly transform into thick and springy pillows. Their thick texture makes them perfect for hearty meals, and can be served hot or cold.
If you are looking for a thick and cushiony canvas for your delicious Asian inspired sauces, Udon noodles are a perfect choice. Although these thick and springy wheat noodles are most popular in Japanese cuisine, they also have a place in other Asian cultures like Korean.
These noodles arrive to you dried, but once they come in contact with boiling water, they immediately begin to soak up the liquid and expand. The mouth feel of an Udon noodle is unlike anything else. They are soft and doughy like gnocchi, but long and slurpable like spaghetti. Unlike some pasta that can be weighed down by a lot of heavy ingredients, Udon noodles are resilient and are actually best when served with big chunky pieces of seafood and a spicy chile pepper sauce. Try adding your Udon to soup, letting the noodles cook in the broth and absorb all of the flavor like a sponge. Your chicken soup experience will never be the same after that.
